BREAKING: Grenell Says He Is Working To Declassify More Flynn Documents

by Paul Goldberg

DailyCaller reports Richard Grenell, the acting director of national intelligence, said Friday he is working on declassifying transcripts of phone calls between former national security adviser Michael Flynn and former Russian ambassador Sergey Kislyak.

Grenell revealed his plans in an exchange on Twitter with Democratic California Rep. Eric Swalwell regarding a request Friday from House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff for transcripts of the Flynn-Kislyak calls.

Schiff, a Democrat, requested the call transcripts as well as records related to 39 so-called “unmasking” requests that Obama administration officials made for intelligence reports that mentioned Flynn. Grenell declassified that list earlier this month, and it was released on May 13. (RELATED: Classified Leak Against Michael Flynn Didn’t Come From ‘Unmasking’ Request, Analysis Shows)

“Those are coming,” Grenell wrote to Swalwell. “It’s very important for the public to see ALL of them.”

He then took a swipe at the Democratic congressman, writing that “for too long the public has been misled.”

“Just compare your committee’s transcripts to your public statements!”

Grenell was referring to revelations in transcripts of Obama administration officials’ testimony to the House Intelligence Committee in 2017 and 2018. The transcripts, which were released on May 7, showed that the officials said they had not seen evidence of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian government.

During that same time period, Schiff, Swalwell and other Democrats publicly claimed that the Trump campaign conspired with Russia.

Grenell said in another tweet that he is working to declassify the documents that are under the control of the intelligence community, or IC.
